Abused wife, Jill Thompson knows she has to get out of her bad marriage. Like yesterday. With no money, no job and no friends, this small town girl can’t find a safe harbor. But when she sees a news report that The Program, a US military base, is seeking women to be matches for their genetically enhanced soldiers, she sees her opportunity. If she is lucky enough to be a match, her snake-mean husband, Jack, won’t be able to find her, let alone hurt her ever again.
Rowan Blacker, is the only soldier of his cohort to request a breed match. He’s the newest soldier on campus and thanks to his genetic defect, he feels like an outcast. Matching and breeding with a woman will help him fit in with the team. Unfortunately Rowan’s match is nothing like the sexy, fun woman he was hoping to romance. The woman they claim is his perfect DNA match, is a scared shell of a woman carrying a trunkful of emotional baggage. Against their better judgment, they move in together and as Jill shakes off the shackles of abuse, their attraction ignites.
Engineered with superior strength, agility and acumen, the genetically enhanced soldiers of the top secret Program do the dangerous assignments no one else can. Now, they’re tasked with one additional job. Breed.
But finding and convincing their perfect DNA match they are the right men for the job may be their most dangerous mission to date. And the hottest. Good thing, they’re Coded for Love.
I chose this book because it sounded so different from what I have read so far. And I was right. The is the fifth book of the series but can be a stand alone. I haven't read the books before. But now I want to read the rest.
Absolutely loved Rowan. He finds his DNA match and when they meet, he is confused how she was his match. She had a rough life for the past 6 years and is looking for a way out. And Rowan just wants to take care of her. Very caring and giving to her. Best word to describe him. Selfless.
Jill has been married to her high school sweetheart and he is a piece of crap. She has to get away from him but he has made it almost impossible to do that. The program is the only way out.
It is a lot more to the story than just Rowan and Jill. But no matter what happens, you can't help but to want them to be together. Not just because of their DNA link. Because they belong together, sole mates(corny, I know).
Love Rowan from beginning to end. Jill was great as well. I can't wait to read Lynne's next book. She develops great characters along with a fantastic story.
I rate the book a 4.4.
By day, Lynne Silver lives the suburban soccer mom life; volunteering with the PTA, doing laundry and working. By night she enters the sensuous world of alpha males and passionate heroines. She calls the nation’s capital home and lives in an old fixer-upper with her husband and their two sons. When not writing romance, she reads it. Lots of it. Over and over and over again, preferably with a bag of M&Ms in hand.
